Abstract

MANY UNDERGRADUATES have trepidation about survey of history courses.1 Student fears and occasional complaints may be based on the traditional methods of teaching survey courses, specifically the exclusive use of lectures, multiple-choice exams, and term papers for instruction and assessment.2 These instructor-centered approaches are convenient and use class time efficiently, but they do not actively engage students in the discovery of knowledge; prerequisites for meaningful learning environments.3
